1) What was the mode of transit for your last trip?
My last two trips were completed in a typical transportation mode for me -- my Honda CR-V. The very last trip was a short day trip - we traveled 186 miles one way to southern CT to visit a beloved aunt. The trip before that was a 7 hour jaunt (each way) to visit my youngest sister out in western NY state at Thanksgiving. The trip before that was a major one. We went to Greece. We used a car, a shuttle bus, an airplane, a taxi, a coach bus, several ferries, and a city bus. We passed on the mules.
2) Have you ever traveled by train?
Yes. As a child I lived in southern CT, along the coast, and the train went right through my town. We took the train into NY occasionally. My father and I used to walk to the paper (and tobacco) store and then go over to the train station to watch the trains while he smoked a cigar or pipe, and I enjoyed a Charms lollipop. When I was in college I once took the train from New Haven, CT to Cincinnati, OH. It was a 24 hour trip via Washington, DC, Stoughton, VA, Charleston, WV, and finally Cincinnati. The last time I took the train was about 2 years ago. We went to Cornwall for a week's vacation. We took the train from Heathrow to St. Ives, and used the train several times to travel to other places in the area.
3) Do you live in a place with public transit, and if so, do you use it?
Nope. You need a car in this rural area of New Hampshire.
4) What's the most unusual vehicle in which you've ever traveled?
I can't really come up with one that I remember. However, I have pictures of me at 13 months, riding in a goat-drawn cart in Cuba. (This gives you a hint of my age -- this was pre-Castro) I've also ridden an camel and an elephant, albeit at the Bronx Zoo, so unless you count riding in a circle around a track as travel, it probably doesn't count!
5) What's the next trip you're planning to take?
I don't have a specific trip scheduled, but we are seriously considering a road trip to the West Coast this summer. We will travel by car if we do accomplish this.
